YOUR SAY VALENTINES DAY - What an amazing night we had! The staff were pleasant and professional, and the food tasted amazing. During the cruise I proposed to my partner on the top deck so we are definitely going back home the special memories from Valentines Day. Anne, UK

Service: The decoration and food was excellent. The service staff were lovely, helpful and courteous. Having a table number organised with a list at the door was very efficient.
The one thing we were not so impressed with was standing in line for over an hour in the heat. We were requested in the booking letter to arrive and hour early for boarding but boarding was late as your were not ready on time. This is too much to expect of elderly or disabled people. Next time we would arrive more to the time of sailing to avoid this.
Product: The purchase over the internet worked fine.

Main course had a good spread but dessert had little choice. The venue was overcrowded. Harbour cruise was too short .

Service: It was so well organised, everything ran like clockwork. All the staff gave outstanding service and were so friendly. We enjoyed the food and drinks. There were many different dishes to choose from, something for everyone! We liked being able to purchase our photos as a momento of our day. And of course, there was the cruise itself on Sydney Harbour which was sensational! Thankyou to everyone involved.
Product: Excelllent value for money - food, drinks and a cruise.
